Charming Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

A lovely little cottage on a hill overlooking beautiful Lake Willoughby VT!

Very clean and well maintained property - Very private quiet location. The house

is situated on a bit of a hill - so not really a good fit for elderly or physically challenged

travellers, but if you're up for a bit of a hike - you'll love the view of treetops and a

spectacular night sky - and of course the balcony overlooks one of Vermont's most

picturesque lakes. The owner also provided a great selection of classic films, puzzles

and games - for rainy days. We would definitely recommend this property for a couple

or small family getaway. Public beach is just a few minutes walk. Very good price, very

professional and friendly owner provided everything we needed. Two thumbs up!

Great location, nice cottage for two

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the end of June. Although the weather was not great, we enjoyed our stay at the cozy cottage very much. Liked the enclosed porch and the deck to enjoy meals and conversation and to enjoy the view of Willoughby Lake. It was nice to wake up and see the sunlight through thy skylight in the upstairs bedroom. None of the other cottages were occupied so no problems with parking or noise (there are four others next door). The cottage could do with some minor repairs to windows/screens. This is a cottage with basic amenities and this was perfect for us. Would like to come back some day.

Cute and cozy cabin overlooking a magical lake.

  • 5 of 5

We were comfortable and well situated in this modest but tasteful little cabin. Parking was difficult, and we had to carry our thing up a steep slope to access the house. Still, we didn't mind this and it gave one the impression of living perched in a tree house.

Relaxing, Comfortable Stay

  • 5 of 5

Karen was a highly responsive host, providing lots of information ahead of, and during, our stay. She provided a folder that included directions for the TV and DVD player, hiking trail details, brochures on area attractions, specifics on grocery stores, etc. She labeled the light switches, mapped out where to park, and left directions about VT trash and recycling procedures as well as cleaning expectations. The only thing we needed to bring besides food was our sheets and towels, as soap, TP, paper towels, dishes, cookware, nightlight, etc. were provided. The cottage is well maintained, very clean, neat and attractive. There were handmade quilts on the beds. The bedroom upstairs is large and includes a closet. There is sleeping downstairs on the porch and on the futon in the living room. The small bathroom has a shower stall. There is a screened porch with table and chairs as well as the pictured table and chairs and lounge chair on the deck, which has a grill. The cottage has fans, but the breezes coming in were more than enough for comfort on warm days/nights. As is common on lakes, this cottage is one of three next to each other, which are above two closer to the road. There is a steep driveway stops about 50' from the cottage where you can unload, and then park at the street level, also about 50' away. There is a nice public beach about a 2 minute walk away. Interesting books, magazines, videos and DVDs are provided. We watched the BBC documentary: The Earth. While there is traffic during the day and night, it was not bothersome. All in all, it was a very nice place to stay, very peaceful. We would definately stay there again.

Cozy cabin

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time and were quite comfortable. It wasn't fancy but it was private and really close walk to the beach which was a bonus.
